It's probably worth noting that the sides of coaches in passenger service were kept fairly clean:

Underframes, ends and roofs tended to be quite dirty. Sides were not showroom clean though.

I like to spray my coaches all over with acrylic - first earth, then black. Shortly afterwards, I use Qtips and ammonia based window cleaner to "wash" the sides, letting paint residue find its' way into crevices.

I was scared to try it to start with, but if you use things like pastels or the modelmates weathering dyes they all wash off if you're careful. And if happy just matt varnish it in place. That's all I did to start with... Not that I've got much further naturally lol...

How do you apply the varnish, is it spray on or brush on.
